With still no clarity on whether Navjot Singh Sidhu, cricketer-turned politician, will join the Aam Aadmi Party or not, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Friday said that Mr. Sidhu had asked for more time to take a decision.



Mr. Kejriwal, who is also the AAP convenor, had met Mr. Sidhu last week after returning from a 10-day vipasana session at Dharamshala at his official residence.



“Wud Navjot Sidhu ji join AAP- lot of rumours? Its my duty to put forward our side. We have greatest greatest regard for this ckt legend. He met me last week. Didn’t put any pre-condition. He needs time to think. Lets respect that. He is a v gud human being n a ckt legend. My respect for him wud continue whether he joins or not (Sic)” he said in a series of tweets.



The Aam Aadmi Party on Thursday had said it was Mr. Sidhu’s decision to quit the Rajya Sabha and it would be his call to join the Arvind Kejriwal-led party.
